I know it’s been a while since I’ve added a post to this blog but between moving into the new house (and shop), holidays, work, etc. I just haven’t had a ton of shop time. I actually put off working on the new shop until after the first of the ye...

I'm a system engineer living way down in Southern Maryland. I'm orginally from Arkansas and moved to California in the beginning of 2005 right after college. After eight long years in the desert we moved back to a place that has trees at the end of 2012.
I begin woodworking in the winter of 2009 after buying our first home. Seeing how I needed tools to work on the house, I figured it'd be a good time to give woodworking a try. Though I have no formal training, not even shop class in high school, I've always been fasicianted by woodworking.
Small boxes have been my main interest over the last couple years, though I am starting to venture into other areas. I've built some new doors and drawers for our kitchen and redid our master closet a few years ago. I have ventured into the world of furniture yet, but I think that day is coming soon.
LumberJocks' has been like a second faimly to me over the few years. I have met some great people, learned more than I thought possible, and have been inspired by all the amazing work on this site. I can't even image trying to learn this wonderful art without the help of this site.
Thanks for looking.
Wooooo Pig Sooie!!!

It has been a while since I posted anything about the new shop. Mainly due to the fact we’ve been working on the actual house, moving, dealing with family and the holidays, etc. However, I have got a little done in the shop since I took of...
Hello y’all! I thought I’d share with you a big discovery I made this weekend in the new shop: books! And lots of them! While taking a break from working on the house I thought I’d bust open the two large, containers in the corner of the ...
Hello all LumberJocks! As promised in my Gloat to End all Gloats post, I’m starting a blog series dedicated to discovering, moving in, and setting up the dedicated shop we got as part of our recent home purchase. I plan to put several ty...
Here’s my attempt at showing the solution to the washer puzzles I make. It turned out to be a little harder than I thought. Describing this with just pictures probably isn’t the best way to go, but I’ve included a link at the b...
